If you head south on Somerville Ave you will hit Union Square, arguably the city’s heartbeat. In the shadow of the Prospect Hill Monument Union Square offers a diverse collection of dinning, retail and commerce among one of the most densely populated areas of Great Boston. And at its heart, this neighborhood is about contrast. Prospect Hill where the first American Flag was raised overlooks the brand new USQ development under construction that will house state of the art life science companies. There is an Axe throwing Bar across the street from one of the city’s most iconic pubs The Independent. Bow Market is an open air retail, and F&B incubator housed in an old storage building. Grab a Portuguese breakfast at The Neighborhood or go across the street for a Maple bacon donut from Union Square Donuts. Peruvian food, German cuisine, Ice cream, Sushi, live music, Bibimbop, bike shops, and so so much more. Don’t wait, get out there and explore!
